I screwed up my GP prelims because of food poisoning

When critical examinations are just around the corner, students are often reminded to take good care of their health so that they can perform optimally for their papers. That includes watching what you eat, or in this particular instance, what you drink, as netizen Fudezuriyani reminiscences about an unlucky episode he endured previously as an 'A' Level student :

"The day before my General Paper prelims, I drank a few cups of milk tea that had gone bad. The tea came from a caterer, nobody said anything about it and I didn't know how bad tea tasted like. Plus, I drank a lot of it. The next morning, I had no signs of food poisoning and went to school as per normal and sat for the paper. About 30 minutes into the examination, I was almost done drafting my paper when it happened. My stomach started churning and making noises. I tried to continue with my paper, but I couldn't take it anymore. I had to go. Thankfully, I was sitting directly in front of the stage and it was rather convenient to sign out. I don't think I would made it if I was seated at the other end of the hall. I tried to walk as fast as I could without letting myself go and looking desperate at the same time.

Taking that dump was a huge relief, but it wasn't over. I had less than 1 hour to write the paper and I have yet to complete my drafting of things. I returned to my seat and it happened again 15 minutes later. I held it in, put my head on the table, held my stomach with my left hand and wrote the paper with my right hand. I was breathing heavily the whole time. I went to the toilet again during the final 15 minutes. I managed to finish the paper in time, albeit barely. I just passed the paper."
